PAN-Aadhaar cards linking: 17 crore PAN cards could soon turn useless
Out of the 48 crore PAN card holders in India, more than 17 crore are yet to link it with their Aadhaar cards
Once the income tax department declares all such PAN cards as inoperative, no one will be able to use them
NEW DELHI : Despite the income tax department having extended the deadline to link PAN (Permanent Account Number) card with Aadhaar card for eight times in the past, more than 17 crore PAN card holders are yet to link the two documents. After amendment in the Finance Bill, 2019, the income tax department has the authority to make all such PAN cards which are not linked to Aadhaar inoperative.
